* My sister took the (very vast) majority of photos on our DC trip - I plan on aquiring them and putting together a post this weekend. The short version - yay DC! yay bookshop! yay monuments! omfg my feet!
* I need to put together a post on the Castle season finale. Enough time's passed that I can probably be reasonable about it.
Onto the linkspam:
* More fanfic meta - this piece by copperbadge and Fan the Flames yuki_onna (author Catherynne M. Valente).
* Actually, yuki_onna's on a bit of a roll - you should also check out The Lost World, which is about Lost in specific (spoiler warning!) and genre shows in general. Good stuff.
* The Third Virtual Season of Torchwood, tw_itallchanges, has wrapped up and, folks. It was brilliant.
* Also brilliant is Janelle Monáe's new album, The ArchAndroid. [has it on repeat]
* Arizona Fights Back Against Boycott Threats Due to Immigration Law. Warning - if you're anything like me, you won't be able to do anything but mutter dicks under your breath for a good five minutes after reading. DICKS.
* Current-ish status on the Gulf oil spill, courtesy of BoingBoing.
* The Facts In The Case Of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, a comic about the MMR vaccination 'controversy'. Relatedly, an older article from Wired: An Epidemic of Fear: How Panicked Parents Skipping Shots Endangers Us All.
* Last night, group of people banded together on MetaFilter to help keep two Russian woman from being sold into sexual slavery. Really (as far as I can tell, anyway. Hell of a hoax if it's not true).
* Follow Friday! I've named both these people before but it bears repeating - if you like my linkspams you should absolutely be following cofax7 and rm (although the latter is only posting on LJ, which may be cheating). Both have regular link posts and a bunch (fanfic! recs! meta! stuff!) of other interesting things besides.
